The ASA Section on Statistics and the Environment is sponsoring the following topic-contributed sessions at this year’s Joint Statistical Meetings in Montréal, Québec, Canada:

  • Developing Statistical Methods in Setting Environmental Exposure Limits
    Organizer: Jing Zhang, Miami University
  • Stochastic Downscaling Methods in Geosciences
    Organizer: Julie Carreau, Institute de Recherche pour le Developpement
  • Recent Developments in Statistical Methods for Ecological Data
    Organizer: Devin Johnson, National Marine Mammal Laboratory
  • Survey and Statistical Methods in Forestry Research
    Organizer: Michael D. Larsen, The George Washington University
  • Modeling Spatially Indexed Ecological Data
    Organizer: Devin Johnson, National Marine Mammal Laboratory
  • Environmental Impacts on Public and Ecological Data
    Organizer: Matthew Heaton, National Center for Atmospheric Research

In addition to JSM, the section invites members to attend several conferences this year, including the Spatial Statistics 2013 conference, “Revealing Intricacies in Spatial and Spatio-Temporal Data with Statistics,” to take place June 4–7 in Columbus, Ohio. The aim of the meeting is to present interdisciplinary research where applicability in other disciplines is a central core concept.

Also in June, The International Environmetrics Society is sponsoring their 23rd annual conference in Anchorage, Alaska, from June 10–14.The theme this year is “Quantitative Methods, Applications, and Issues in Natural Resources: Assessment, Regulation, Development, Use, and Conservation.”

Finally, the International Workshop on Climate Informatics will take place September 26–27 in Boulder, Colorado. The series, now in its third year, seeks to stimulate the discussion of new ideas, foster new collaborations, grow the climate informatics community, and accelerate discovery across disciplinary boundaries.
